    if just in the 1st quadrant. u can use the identity : cosx = sin(90-x) cos(2x-4)=sin(6x) sin(90-(2x-4))=sin(6x) 90-(2x-4) = 6x solve for x the result would be same like @dan817 said :)

    in a right angled triangle the 2 other angles must add up to 90

    no lets do it between 4 to pi+4 for 1 interval of your cos(2x-4)

    cos(2x-4)=cos(90-6x) a)2x-4=90-6x+360k b)2x-4=6x-90+360k a)x=94/8+45k b)x=86/4+90k
